I took my daughter here yesterday for the morning. She is visiting from rural Canada and wanted to see "proper" formal gardens. lol Well we were not disappointed. Such a tranquil place and had I realised there were so many places to picnic I would have pack a picnic lunch for us instead of the one we bought there at... More

We have visited Nyman's on many occasions and have always enjoyed the experience. The grounds are magnificent and well kept, the house and ruins are very interesting, and by walking quietly one can find interesting wildlife. This month we found 2 adult Large Alder Sawflies (Cimbex connatus) by the wooden walkway (they don't sting!). They used to be rare in... More

I took an elderly group of people to Nymans today, the staff were so helpful and very organised. Five of my members went on the mobility buggy around the gardens and really enjoyed it. The rest of us walked to the house which we went round. After this we had a cuppa and a piece of cake in the cafe.... More

Our visit to nymans was very pleasant. The gardens are very pretty and cover a large area. Good for bringing a picnic and finding a nice spot. The house itself is most impressive from the outside. Not a great deal to see inside in the rooms that remain. I would've preferred to have to around the ruined part of the... More

Delightful gardens with lovely views over the surrounding countryside, in high summer the flower beds are a mass of colour. Plenty of seats to sit & rest & watch the world go by. A few rooms in the house are open for short periods & worth a look. Nice plant section & shop as well as light & airy restaurant.

Small by comparison to other NT properties this is worth a visit on a sunny day to appreciate all the garden has to offer. The rose gardens were over by the time we visited which was a shame as I imagine they would be fantastic when in full bloom. The woods are worth a trip around although not for the... More

Nymans is small compared to other NT properties and has a mixture of woodland, vistas and formal gardens. Very popular with visitors with 2 cafes to choose from. Unfortunately the food was mediocre.
